What exactly is Data Science and why does it matter?

We live in a world with seemingly infinite data, and if you can learn the right balance of computer science, statistics, and information theory, there are lucrative opportunities available to you. This class is designed to give newcomers some clarity into how data scientists add value to any organization. Discover case studies about how data science is uniquely positioned to solve major problems for a variety of companies. By the time you finish this class, you’ll have a better idea of what the data science field is, and more importantly, how you can help yourself get what the Harvard Business Review calls the “sexiest job of the 21st century”.
